Matt Serra coming to Baltimore next weekend

I received word a couple of days ago from Ground Control co-owner John Rallo that UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra will be visiting Baltimore next weekend.  Serra will be in town to give a seminar at Ground Control's training facility in Canton.  The seminar is from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25, and will cover MMA as well as no-gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

According to Rallo, Serra will be bringing one of his black belts with him and will be assisted by Tom Muller.  According to the Ground Control Web site, the cost of the seminar is $100 for members.  For non-members, the cost is $125.

Rallo says he and Serra have known each other since Rallo began training with Renzo Gracie in 1999, and have remained good friends since.
